off the of health insurance dole. it will be huge. neil: i appreciate it. that will do it. have a nice weekend. gerri: two nights of "the willis report." the solution to obamacare we take an "in-depth" look at what you can do for your health care in the age of obamacar and babyingnd shaving web sites. growing in popularity but are they the goal? we help you have the best thanksgiving dinner ever. coming up tonight. "the willis report." gerr tonight we look as
solutions to obamacare and the problem is the law has created. especial user's guide t skyrocket a -- rocky premiums implants they've told they could keep you have heard theitany of prlems but tonight our panel of experts breaks down real strategy is in real solutions and answers. douglas told secant is here chris jacobs center for policy health studies at george pataki. i was on the web site. >> you actually got through? >> of of pages still says you can keep your insurance policy if you want to. >> rita l. that's not true of the president just apologize about that and the fact 8 million americans is this year will be notified their policies are canceled.
they're all are treateds and exptions that congress pass when they would ram this through so there is help. gerri: for americans to have insurance coverage you can keep it. duquesne not to. down, one of the fate this i have been talki about is the kaiser family foundation is known as an expert and they hav aalculator on there website you could calculate the subsidies you are eligible for. they use this on the fderal government web site you caot get on there. [laughter] >> they are experts it is a good-faith effort to give help but the bottom line we will have winners and sers the lettersill go to kaiser family foundation a juicy it can break it down
to something reasonable also it is t a solution f what had to present a at. the next question is t reduce the for your doctor? gerri: the problems go on and off but people night know that mom or d or somebody in the family that was just canceled a an what can they get on the fedel governnt web site? if you are 62 year-old woman king a $32,000 per year. here is what you get from the obamacare web site at a premium of $7,200 a subsidy of 44 so you pay 3,000 out of pocket. that is $6,300 that is a ir amount of mone be back for a l of people premiums have gone up maybe there'll be paying $2,000
with $4,000 deductible now they pay 3,000 with $6,300 deduductible because obamacare is forcing insurance companies to cover other services they have to pay more. >> than a 62ye-old woman is getting maternity services. >> but she still has to pay r it if she doesn't. rri: private exchaes. private insurance exchanges, is a possible this is a dancer? >> it already is. self insance were you are not under the heavy handf obamacare if you are signe up with self insurance a lot of times workerson't even know. you have no rules or penalties of our taxes of obamacare but for small businesses to join 60% of large business and 80 percent of the unions get it through a self insurance
for only 50 percent of small business so they should ok at this it is more e efcienand less expenve and allows you to tailor the coverage. gerri: what are yr iticisms? >> if you are a self -- a small firm's health insurer you ke on allhe risk if one gets very ill youtill have a problem. it is not a panacea but a situation they have en cahow forced into trying to find any shelter. >> governor? >> there is an option if you are a small business you don't want to assume the risk of somebody gets a serious illness you have to pay 200,000 is a you can get insurance anything above 5,000 or ,000 you are covered wh a private insurer that the employer pays for.
you could limit their risk estimate that's a good point but the important to peace is it is tailored it is what obamacareoes not let you tailor it to your circumstances the biggest difference between private republican approach. gerri: peop want to see private sector solutions they don't want to be with the government program. what ee is emerging? >> private exchanges are out there and health insurance is an option of. pieces like clinics that have ready access to care. but to put the lipstick on the big board make lemonad out of beloved choose t anogy. >> on how they may not be available in would be
difficult to get doctors and was searchingor a solution because i hear from people from medicare to say i am really worried wil lose my doctor over time that they will work with people who are really wealthy. i think these people should see whatheir plans are to major's. >> if they can get a doctor to enter the phone. middle-class it is hard to do. just aan example 82% a and ucky signed up for medicaid there might not be enough doctors. gerri: what can we do about that pblem of? >> if you have private markets we offer by a having a higher wages and attracting peopl died here is the low reimbursement rates to medicaid to save with the obamacare exchange. they are the medicaid of the future that is not a solution. gerri: out it is on view.
have to get your own coverage, find a doctor with the hospital they allow you to use,eople say how can i look out for mysel i have spent jockeyed of what still some weeks that does dna teing to look to see what should i be werke to protect melf? >> we will see more personalized madison because of the harnessing of the human genome to be tailored you see that with the problem is obamare tries tout the one size fits all sotion. >> no question. one of the sad altnatives is to be a small busiss with fewer tn 30 workers why we're not seng him plugging grow part-time
workers held at 29 you are out from obamacare. there has to be a better way >> hope we can findnd that. gerri:ou are sticking around as the solutions continue and we will talk about the politics surrounding the law a what washington can do now. inhe meantime go to gerri willis.com. willis.com. individual solutions this is the quicksilver cash back card from capil one. it's not the "lit the cash i earnvery mth" card. it's not the "i only ea decent rewards at the gas stationcard. it's the no-games, no-signing up, everyday-rewarding, kung-fu-fighting, silver-lightning-in-a-bottle, bringing-home-the-bacon cash back card.

t several comeback to an hour to find real solutions to the problems created under law problems that the president today made a light touch did his p.j. louisiana >> we had this problem with e website. i am not happy about that i want to fix it myself but i don't write code. there will only be so much support we get on that on a bipartis basis ad tell it is working real well then they will stop calling and obamacare. gerri: our panel is back.
and from the center of health policy udies thank governor pataki is that in good taste? ltd. is pathetic he is laughing at a problem that millions ofamericans have bid 10 million more will have. it doesn't st have colbert problems it is flawed. it will not work they can try to tax parts of it but ultimately they have to take a look amir to say we screwed up we finallyead it we have to go back to the drawing board. rri: he apologized lt night. >> i a sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assuraes they gotrom the. >> that is as close to an apology willver get from thisresident. he is not noted for his
modesty and i really think this will come back to haunt him. it a forceful way he did promise people he keep their plan or keep their doctor. it is not true but the governor is right that is not the only problem the more you dig the more problems you will find that is the taliban problem. gerri: now at the back and read the website tries to communicate with providers. >> it is interesting obamacare doesn't let you keep your health coverage it do cover kirch feelings? said he is sorry if you're rt the league's but not for making the promises. >> have a website still promises you could keep your coverage but they cannot fix the whole page of the web site?
how to the fix thweb site? >> they can't they cannot fix the law. the tides to y securities they this was a bad bill? they do they we're doing back. gerri: here what the presidt said. >>. >> i have been burned already with the web site or more apart the the people have the verge. >> he still has his health care but what about t 65 year-old will get? i don't feel sorry for the president. >> i just want to echo. the american people have a proble they paid for a website that doesn't ork about may very well not be
secure and once it is working they still have a bad lot it is nonetheless the maer. gerri: why don't they delayed the mandate for one year? check the people need relief enf they getheeb site working a constituent from north carolina came to us last week and with personal information and from another person applying for coverage that disclosed tim a north carolina man received a sth carolina cabana the eligibility. gerri: in washinon is the same state. [laughter] yo information is not saf such you really want to o us it? >> flying down to president. >> she knows that he is that travel in the louisiana and
she is running next year. thenvery major social issue advanced in a bipartisan wayxcept obamacare this was the signature of the democratic jority with the catastrophe they have too old at what them to see that runaway. gerri: date sapir said the chief technology officer for the what will they learn? iraq fifth security testing. there have been concerns abouthe security of the web site. there is some indication as they do there w a problem of at the lunch were their security concerns?
why did u go ahead? the web site may be fixed but th is a lasting judgme call. gerri: as a you say not only did they know a bunch of people would lose their coverage but they ao do there was security problems? >>he ainistration and said they'd never did end to end testing and la week it seemedine in this would never have the baby because the people ascii for h resignation as she does not work for them so she doesn't care but the people the to go this website is secure befo they pert -- butf the social security numbers to back the chinese will go more of the americans they have the nsa. i guarantee there is a little phial of everybody.
>> it is absurd. it is funny except it is tragic. >> the irs the social security administration it is not just my number but a weak point in the security of u.s. records criminals pay more for health care rerds mores there social security number and there it is to be had. will be back after the break looking at more solutions to the rise a cost of obamacare. obamacare. don't go away. when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals:
help the gulf recover and learn from what happened so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the heart of everything we do. we've added cutting-edge technology, like new deepwater welcap and a state-of-the-art monitoring center, whexperts watch over all dlling activity twenty-four-seven. and we're sharing what we've learned, so we can all produce energy more safely. our commitment has never been stronger.
gerri: "usersuide t obamacare" continues tonit with the in dth lookat the massive cost of this law that small businesses even the system itself could the cost craig thwhole system down? us bring back our guest. it introduced the floor from the "wall street journal." about me with this. the price tag on eight we were originally told in 2013 overed yearsis 1.8 trillion how does that have happened? why is there such a big boost? >> douglas is the one who idges the numbers i think it is voodoo.
we have talked for weeks about the fact the promis is broken and ifou want your health care you could keep it but here is the bigger lie the idea this will pay for itself and will noblow a hole in the deficit and reeler the opposite. people are not citing up subsidize but you can see a masse cost. >> one of the biggest cst of the detrimental impact is what of the reasons you see the price tag go up. a lot of people who are unemployed logger than anyone projected and obamare raises the price tag. if we get past the srter problems there is no chance
it will add but the premiums are too high and dead in tt end we don't t much of a program. the store famine nothing in between. gerri: and i think the real fear is the program goes top-seeded billions of people inside that said we have a huge ta have the president said yesterday that he wants to put eve more sbsidy moneyon the table. >> exactly. in addition to promise a you can keep your plan but did in 2008 president or a candidate obama said it would cost 50 or 60 million per year when fully implemented the commercial budget office says 2023 it will cost $250 billion for
the subsidies. that is fourr five tis what he promised not county if you kids get a waiver or if they have to subsidiz or four employers decide to drop coverage it is a lowball estimate. rri: and so a b announcement from kathleen sebelius earlier today talking about adding ment-health. [laughter] so she ss the should be parityetween carriage of mental-health issues and physical ailments. if i break my arm on sixth enue i will see a doctor who wwll fix ann it is over. therapy is once a week over years. how do you make them the sa? the cost is ffert.
>> you talk to all major new crosstree already know that obamacare is basic plan is much more important one dash expensive than people thought. they will continue to add benefits. if it ever gets off the ground. every american a once their own health plan. like kiwi be a society to pi and choose? why do we do one-size-fits-all? i do not the maternity care. [laughter] gerri: tell me something intelligent about the mental health benefit i understand but psychiatrists do not work to work for this kind of money that medicare and medica services do.
>>hat is betwee the meta kolff services with a lack of access. said it the are some elements like diabetes better chronicler better similar to aental health so they try t establish parity but the key point is why do we add more benefits to the one size fits all package? that is what is wrong with this from the insurance point of view. gerri: last wor what is the biggest problem? >> the benefits a of that there are incentives to t more people in the exchange's so he put them with a government benefit kirk combined with the problems of medicare/medicaid social security is a recipe for disaster. gerri: you were on capol
hill did you see it? >> don't say we didn't try to warn you but the regulations in three years ago said you cannot keep your plan but now people our just waking in up to the reality. gerri: stake you so much. we appreciate your time. comi up we will switch gears for current legal panel weighs in on a new trend of public they began shaving. added next one of the most important storiesrom the week a look at a genetic testing can change your life after the break. @??
finding answers to coping with obamacare is on a personal level a can be intimidating. or scary for the 5 million people who have had their health insance canceled but the risks our bigger than back getting affordable care you can have confidence in it is more difficult for ever but a. will your doctor be around next year? the ar after that? what about your hospital? will your insurer paid for you to go there or had chosen atcheaper facility? the burden of responsibility is shifting to you. you have to make sure you get the care they you need and deserve. under obamacare is shifty to protect itself thatves you on your own. we have been talking about solutions than one shortcut or one solution that i thought that may interest

thatis a profound included allergies of misinformation you can share with your doctor some people don't know they have a and genetics plays a big role. gerri: i am already taking steps that it hhs made a $95 but you could get pay deprivation that could really help you. the other thing that i have to put in my medical records out a drug respse. >> you are hypersensitive to a blood -- a blood thinner you would require a much lower dose so this is important innovation to share with your doctor because you could have the adverse side effect. gerri: is a you made i could lead out in a situatio. that is critically important lots of questions today when you are a did a bad bet if
